Project Details


The San Nicolás satellite project is a volcanic massive sulfide deposit and was discovered in November of 1997 through a combination of surface geology, geophysics, and drilling. Drilling on the property has intersected two massive sulfide deposits, the largest of which is San Nicolás which is divided into the upper Cap Zone and the Lower Feeder Zone. The project is covered by a substantial group of mineral claims totaling 8,888ha.
